Council Bluffs,Iowa. 21/8/1928. – Manhattan, New York. 4/10/1999.

Cresciuto a Phoenix, dove ha studiato il pianoforte ed il violino. A quattordici anni è passato alla tromba. Nel 1945 si è trasferito a Los Angeles con il fratello gemello Addison, qui ha lavorato ed è maturato musicalmente con Horace Henderson, poi ha suonato con Floyd Ray e con Johnny Otis. Trasferitosi a New York ha lavorato con Jay McShann, tornato a Los Angeles ha suonato con Benny Carter, Lionel Hampton, Gerald Wilson, Dexter Gordon, Frank Morgan, Teddy Edwards e con Joe Turner. E’ stato un musicista molto duttile, ha inciso con un bopers come Wardell Gray e con sperimentatori come George Russell. Nel 1954 ha messo sù un gruppo con Gigi Gryce, ha suonato con Horace Silver, Clifford Brown, Oscar Pettiford, Milton Jackson, Mundell Lowe Gerry Mulligan, Jay Jay Johnson, con la Clarke/Boland, Ron Carter, Mal Waldrom. J. Benson Brooks, Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, Donald Byrd e Idris Sulieman. Con Benny Golson ha diretto il sestetto “Jazztet” luogo e cornice ideale per la sua inventiva pacata e lirica. Dopo aver sciolto il gruppo nel 1962, insieme a Jim Hall, ha guidato un gruppo che comprendeva anche Steve Swallow, Walter Perckins o Peter LaRoca. In seguito ha guidato un quintetto insieme a Jimmy Heath. Ha diviso la sua carriera tra la sua casa di Vienna, gli Stati Uniti ed il Giappone. Nel 1977 ha guidato un altro suo quintetto con Hatty Sokal, Fritz Pauer, il bassista svizzero Heiri Kanzig o il bassista brasiliano Paolo Cardoso ed il battersita austriaco Joris Dudli. Nel 1983 ha suonato con Chico Freeman, nel 1984 con Slide Hampton, con il suo gruppo ha preso parte al Jacksonville Jazz Festival del 1985. Ha anche suonato con Clifford Jordan, Jerome Richardson, nel 1989 con Frank Morgan, con Cedar Walton, Ron Carter, e Billy Higgins. Poi con Geoff Keezer, Kenny Davis, Lewis Nash, Marvin Smitty Smith, Lou Levy, Andy Simpkins, nel 1994 con Vince Lateano, Ron Blake, Ted Rosenthal, nel 1998 con Iron Israel. Trombettista molto vicino alla musica di Davis, anche se ha una sua musica vivace, naturale e molto espressiva specie con la sordina.
